  There was an option in some of the earlier Debian releases to display
 a file /etc/gnump3d/gnump3d.motd by the use of <MOTD></MOTD> tags.

  This was temporary and I'm not sure that many people noticed it.

  At the time I was using it within the company I work for to point
 people to new directories, and to point people to the samba share were
 music could be uploaded.

  I think something like that would work nicely - perhaps having a
 configuration file entry for the name of the file would be best;
 that's the only thing that I might change.

  That's a nice one, and should be simple to implement.  I did it
 already once, just adding "new" next to directory names if they had
 been modified in the past day.  (Via perls '-M' test).

  Adding a new format string "$MODIFIED" which would be replaced with
 either "<font color="red">New</font>" or "" depending on the newness
 would be the way I'd expect it to work.

  However I'm open to suggestions.

  For me songs new that day, or two days at most would make most sense
 but I'd be persuadable if this were configurable to N days new / old.
